Hydrogen, Carbon Capture and Storage

Objectives of the course: to describe CCS, the role it is and could be playing in the energy transition. To illustrate how it could be an Achilles’ heel for the fossil fuel sector. This course is to be as interactive as possible for the participants.
Hydrogen, Carbon Capture and Storage

Course overview

As we move towards zero-carbon, deep electrification combined with new applications for hydrogen promise to transform the way we live, work, and do business. The energy transition will likely revolutionise the way we think about energy, heating, steel making, transport and energy storage; creating new infrastructure and matching supply chains where huge opportunities await.
The race is on for Hydrogen, Carbon Capture and Storage ’clusters’ for early entrants – who, what and where are they? Don’t be left behind.

Who should attend?

• Existing energy companies particularly those who are already part of the engineering, oil and gas, steel, construction and shipbuilding oil and gas supply chain and those looking to future-proof their capabilities.
• The CCS clusters , well-placed to drive the regional industries forward, often including a significant hydrogen component.
• Steel making, shipping, construction and automotive interests

About the course

Carbon capture and storage is seen by many as a necessary transition technology whilst the world builds out the renewable energy system. And this is not limited to power generation. Today more than 95% of the world’s hydrogen is made from fossil fuels (coal and natural gas), so CCS can play a significant role in reducing the CO2 emissions related to this production. And the hydrogen sector is expected to grow exponentially across the globe in the coming years. For example, the UK recently set a target to produce five gigawatts of hydrogen by 2030, representing a 40-fold increase from the current situation. This ambition is replicated worldwide where national hydrogen strategies, often explicitly citing the need for decarbonising industrial sectors such as construction, steel and cement, have appeared regularly over the past year. The journey to a new, low emission energy system will be challenging and requires much innovation: momentum towards netzero continues to build which calls for many industrial sectors to find ways of decarbonising their operations. Hydrogen is likely to play a significant role, especially in sectors where eliminating emissions is particularly difficult. Early engagement with those low or zero-emissions projects will enable fast movers to reap the maximum from the opportunity presented.
The course aims to provide a practical guide to enable companies to make informed decisions and plans based on the real opportunities that are emerging as the global CCS sector develops. Delegates will be guided as to where early opportunities are most likely to lie, who is involved and how to get in front of them.

An essential guide to Green Ammonia

Course overview

As we move towards zero-carbon, deep electrification combined with new applications for hydrogen promise to transform the way we live, work, and do business. Ammonia sometimes referred to as the ‘other hydrogen’ can be at the very forefront of this transformation. Making it in a sustainable, green manner can help revolutionise the way we think about energy, heating, transport and energy storage; creating new infrastructure and matching supply chains where huge opportunities await.
The race is on for early entrants to the global ammonia market – don’t be left behind.

Who should attend?

• Existing energy companies particularly those who are already part of the engineering, oil and gas, steel, construction and shipbuilding oil and gas supply chain and those looking to future-proof their capabilities.
• The agricultural sector which is already familiar with ammonia as a fertiliser and well-placed to drive the industry forward
• Particularly relevant to engineering companies, those involved in storage compression equipment and shipping
• Those companies seeking to enter the ammonia and energy arena with its myriad opportunities in a market valued, in one scenario, by the Bank of America at 11 trillion dollars.

About the course

Ammonia is an integral and crucial part of the emerging hydrogen economy, an industry that is expected to grow exponentially across the globe in the coming years. For example, the UK recently set a target to produce five gigawatts of hydrogen by 2030, representing a 40-fold increase from the current situation. This ambition is replicated worldwide where national hydrogen strategies, often explicitly citing the need for ammonia, are appearing on a weekly basis. The journey to a new, low emission energy system with a much greater role for hydrogen will be challenging and require much innovation. Early engagement with those developing low or zero-emissions ammonia projects will enable fast movers to reap the maximum from the opportunity presented.
The course aims to provide a practical guide to enable companies to make informed decisions and plans based on the real opportunities that are emerging as the global hydrogen and ammonia economy develops. Delegates will be guided as to where early opportunities are most likely to lie, who is involved and how to get in front of them.

Hydrogen Safety

Hydrogen safety training

Hydrogen projects are starting to enter the public domain; at the latest reckoning I counted over 50 major projects and it is vital to remember the basics i.e. is it safe?
Safety is always the top priority for major projects and given the gas’ explosive past is of particular concern for hydrogen developers, with many countries seeking world leadership in a sector set for major growth, it is vital that we get it right. In the UK the first milestone has been passed with the success of the University of Keele’s Hydeploy 1 project which has proven that it is both possible and safe to inject up to 20% hydrogen into a private gas grid.
Although this is a promising start there is still significant work required on the health and safety side and a real lack of appropriately informed training and support. Following enquiries from global developers looking for safety-focused support, I developed a training and consultancy package designed to meet the specific safety needs of the burgeoning hydrogen industry.
My expert team comprises forward-looking health and safety professionals with backgrounds in real-world project delivery within the UK and beyond for utilities and oil and gas majors. We have utilised our unique combination of knowledge and expertise to develop a much-needed package of support that takes a best practise approach to meeting current regulation and offers a real solution to the present lack of appropriate training and support.
The package is primarily aimed at those oil and gas majors and global utilities that are leading the charge towards a hydrogen economy, it can be delivered in person or remotely and is easily tailored to individual needs. Existing clients have welcomed our offer and we now wish to make it available to all.
We are happy to chat through how we can help so please get in touch. If you are interested in learning more about hydrogen safety join the Hydrogen HSE for business professionals group.
